The sentencing for a Liberal man convicted for his role in connection with a marijuana growing operation has now been set for Oct. 9.

After jurors gave a guilty verdict last week for Albert Greeson, attorneys in the case, along with District Judge Clint Peterson, had tentatively set the original sentencing date for Tuesday morning.

Prosecutor Dennis Jones and Greeson’s attorney, J. Gregory Swanson, met with Peterson Tuesday, and a new date was set.

The new sentencing date will come nearly one year to the date after Greeson was arrested on four felony counts in October 2012. Those charges included distributing certain hallucinogens, use or possession of paraphernalia with intent to cultivate marijuana and no drug tax stamp, as well as a count of human trafficking.

Last week, jurors found Greeson guilty of unlawful possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia with intent to use and possession of marijuana with no Kansas drug tax stamp.

The sentencing will take place at 3 p.m. Oct. 9 in Seward County District Court.
